Local Company Turns 50!

Posted on November 6, 2018 By

Fifty years ago (1968), Tom Field, Jackson, N.J., began his business in a garage. Today Tomar* Industries, Freehold, owns a 40 thousand square-foot building, employs more than 30 full-time people, and has five trucks on the road. Tomar Industries, a distributor of packaging, janitorial and safety supplies, and equipment for businesses and institutions, recently celebrated its 50th year in business at Eagle Oaks Country Club, Farmingdale, with family, employees, vendors, and customers.

When Field first started in the industry, he worked for Tuck Tape, manufacturing many pressure sensitive tapes, such as filament, masking, cloth, and cellophane, among others. His last job for Tuck was to open distribution centers across the country to support local distributors. Soon he realized that he enjoyed being a distributor, not a manufacturer.

That was the beginning of Tomar Industries. “In starting this company,” Field said, “I thought I would be able to make recommendations to customers from a very professional point of view. Filament tape and uncoated cloth tape in narrow widths were the first items we sold for palletizing a company’s pallets and products.”

His first customer was a large food distribution company. Soon, however, he was selling thousands of packaging, janitorial, and safety supplies and services in the tristate area for warehouses, plants, and front offices.

Not too long after Tomar Industries began in a garage, Field moved into his first building in Spotswood, New Jersey. After Tomar Industries outgrew that building, he moved into a building in Marlboro. When Tomar Industries outgrew that building as well, Field constructed and established his company in the building Tomar Industries occupies today.

In 2000, Tom Field Sr. gave the reins of Tomar Industries to his son Thomas Field Jr., Freehold. As president of the family-owned Tomar Industries, Thomas Field is in charge of the daily operations of the company. Thomas Field, Jr., a graduate of St. Joseph’s High School, Metuchen, earned a B.A. in business administration from Seton Hall University, South Orange. In 1992, he started in the company as a sales rep.

Tom Field Sr. said, “I brought it to one level. He has certainly surpassed that and exceeded every thought that I’ve had since.  He’s a marvelous, marvelous administrator.”

Tomar Industries is a member of the International Sanitary Supplies Association (ISSA), National Paper Trade Association (NPTA), and The United Group (TUG), a national marketing and buying organization that supplies products and services to 450 members across the United States. Tom Field Sr. also serves as a fiduciary member on the TUG Board of Directors.

For more information visit www.tomarind.com or call Thomas Field at 732-780-2200.

*The name Tomar comes from Tom Field Sr. and his wife Mary.

About Tomar Industries: Tomar Industries, 300 Commerce Drive, Freehold, offers and distributes a mix of products and services in the tristate area for warehouses, plants, and front offices. Tomar’s distribution includes industrial packaging supplies and equipment (case sealing, labeling and marking equipment); cold seal packaging machines, tapes and tape dispensers, shrink film and shrink film equipment, bubble wrap, stretch wrap and inflatables; Instapak® foam by Sealed Air; janitorial supplies (toilet paper, roll towels, soaps, floor care, cleaning supplies, liners (bags); scrubbers, sweepers, vacuums, floor machines, etc.; safety supplies and related equipment, such as eye and ear protection, eyewash, gloves, hearing protection welding safety, first aid; machine repair and programmed maintenance; and facility maintenance.  Hours: Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

It’s Groundbreaking! Construction for Medical Arts Building Begins in Lakewood

Posted on November 2, 2018 By

Why drive to North Jersey, New York, or Philadelphia for medical appointments and other medical needs? Soon people in Lakewood, Toms River, Brick, Howell, and the surrounding communities will be able to visit medical professionals and specialists close to their communities.

Long-time Lakewood resident Moshe Shvarzblat, Cedar Bridge Properties LLC, is building two medical arts and professional buildings on Cedar Bridge Avenue, across from Airport Road, Lakewood, right off Exit 89 and the entrance ramp to the Garden State Parkway, to bring more doctors and medical specialists to Lakewood, and to save people time traveling great distances.

After four years of planning, the ground-breaking ceremony recently took place for the first building, an 82,000 square-foot customized medical arts building, designed for health care and wellness, offices, and space for greatly needed doctors and other medical resources. The project is being built by RAY Builders of Lakewood.

Minna Shvarzblat said, “Moshe expects the project to significantly improve the lives of thousands of families over the years by attracting prestigious and expert specialists in the medical arts to the region.”

The ground breaking was attended by members of the Lakewood Industrial Commission (LIC), including Steve Reinman, executive director; Robert Kirschner, chairman; and Thomas Calabro, committee member; Denice Gaffney and Jennifer Shufran, representatives of Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus Foundation; Rabbi Yehuda Kaszirer, executive director of Bikur Cholim of Lakewood; Yehuda Shvarzblat, captain of the Lakewood Volunteer First Aid; and Michael Shvarzblat, agent of commercial real estate finance, Walker & Dunlop, New York.
